Charity information


BrightsideUNIAID (www. Brightsideuniaid. Org) is a national educational charity, formed from the merger of The Brightside Trust and The UNIAID Foundation.

Our vision is of a society where all individuals are inspired and empowered to achieve their potential through education and employment.

We aim to achieve this by helping individuals make informed choices and overcome barriers to their success through:

- Ementoring – connecting individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds with an online mentor who can help them develop skills, gain confidence and explore their further and higher education and employment options;
- Teaching resources – supporting schools and universities to deliver engaging workshops about student finance, higher education and money management (www. Studentcalculator. Org. Uk/teachers);
- Online tools – interactive games and resources about higher education, careers and money for all young people (www. Brightsideuniaid. Org/students).
